Tivoli World, the oldest, largest, and most popular amusement park on Spain’s Costa del Sol, sits atop a hill in Benalmádena. The park features more than 40 rides and attractions, as well as a 4,000-seat outdoor auditorium for daily dance performances. There’s even a Wild West “town,” complete with a Texas barbecue restaurant.
Tivoli World offers several types of entrance tickets for different experiences within the park. With basic admission, you can enter the park and purchase tickets á la carte for individual attractions. The Superior ticket grants unlimited access to most rides and attractions, though a few—including the Terror Mansion, Go-Karts, Shock Boats, and Pony Express—must be purchased separately. Tivoli World is one of 11 stops on the Benalmádena hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus.
